When Dairy technology in the Tropics and Subtropics was published in 1988 it provided handbook and textbook for countries with a developing dairy industry, it aimed to be corn prehensive in its coverage of dairy technology. The book's great recommendation was that it focused on the interaction of the technical and technological aspects of mill handling, milk processing and related subjects. It covered the basics of dairy chemistry, physics and microbiology, together with the handling and processing of milk at farm level, collection and quality control Emphasis was placed on small scale dairying operations, and domestic production other than bovine. Now a companion volume Strategy for dairy development in the Tropics and Subtropics has attempted to explain all the considerations to be taken into account when developing a dairy industry in these zones. It I' axiomatic that the design of this industry should not be based solely on those countries with developed dairy industries, ant each should be tailored to local needs and conditions. J C T van den Berg explores the effects of climate, religion, tradition, education, infrastructure motivation and other factors on dairy systems, production processing, collection, uses and finance. He also discusses the role of women in dairy production and the use of milk in human nutrition and health.
